Two-year-old boy mauled to death by dogs in Nyeri

The late Nyeri Governor, Nderitu Gachagua, and Mathira MP, Rigathi Gachagua, grandson has been mauled to death by neighbour’s dogs.

According to Nyeri Deputy Governor Mutahi Kahiga who rushed to the scene, the police are already investigating the incident that took place at 10 am.

Kahiga said attempts to rescue the two-year-old boy, Wilson Gachagua, by her grandmother, Margaret Gachagua, were largely futile as the boy succumbed to injuries shortly after he was taken to Outspan Hospital.

The deputy governor is now calling on dog owners to ensure their pets are contained to avoid similar incidents.

The police have said they will give a detailed report later during the day on probe progress.
